What have I been doing while M.I.A. ! There's a good reason why !

As some people here have noticed I have been alittle MIA over the last week or 2. I had the big project I was working on that is awaiting approval and the artistic reason I have been MIA is................................... I somehow have busted up my right  (drawing) wrist. No clue how I did it. I know I have a few bone chips in the joint and tendinitis but never has the pain been this bad. I mean I have resorted to pain killer to dull it. But I haven't had a total bust in the drawing department. I have been working on some new sketch cards for 2 cons I might be doing soon. If I don't make them my buddy is still taking them with him. I'm working on a series of Cover Recreations from famous First Appearances. I have 4 sketched up and started inking but I have 2 finished inking that I am proud of. They just need some color but I really like them so far. Let me know what you think. Hopefully I'll be posting more on here when my wrist decides to be kind.

@Edgeworth_11: Thanks ! I really love how it turned out myself.

@Raven0207: These are really great!  The inking on the Wolverine cover turned out especially nice.
 
Sorry to hear about your wrist though. : (

@M.S. Feather: I'm glad everyone is liking these. It really gives me a push to finish some more before the local comic con next month. I was going to do Dragon Con next weekend but my wife and I are taking my nephew to Disney World for his first time so I think its a good swap. My wrist is slowly getting better but still a ways away. With a 5 day weekend vacation starting Thursday there should be plenty of rest for it.

@Raven0207: Yeah, you said you were going to rest up the last time you went to the magical world of Disney...and then you wound up with a busted up foot. :P
 
So to prevent further injury, Feather M.D. is prescribing you this orthopedic gauntlet to wear throughout the duration of your vacation.

@M.S. Feather: Oh I would have soooooooo much fun with that ! I mean it I am taking it easy this time. But I am taking my 3 year old nephew so I may have my hands full !

Sorry to hear about your wrist. Hope you a speedy recovery.

I remember the Wolverine cover! I think the Green Lantern was drawn by Gil Kane! Cool stuff! I believe Wolvie is my favorite out of the two. Hope you recover soon!
 
@M.S. Feather

Welcome back.

The Logan is amazing. I also like the jet in the Green Lantern a lot. 
 
But the Logan is amazing.

@IcePrince_X: thanks i miss the place when I'm away too long !
 
 
@ReVamp: 
Thanks glad you like him. I was trying to stay with Miller's style but not copy it. I just have to color it (or have my buddy color it for me) and see if it sales.

awesome! I was at my local comic shop and saw this Wolverine #1 today. Your drawing recaptures that super sweet cover plus a bag o' chip :) Green Latern is cool too!
Posted by Omega Ray Jay

Wolverine is great

Posted by Raven0207
@madrid_san@Omega Ray Jay:  The Wolvie was a major kick butt piece. I took off today from work cause I just really didn't feel like going back in just yet after my vacation. I plan to sit down and color it today and work up the rest of cover sketch cards.

Any sketch card cover recreations in particular anyone want to see? I'm trying to do mostly 1st appearances but I'm open to anything!

@Raven0207: Not really, but I appreciate your offer. =)

Just Marvel? One of my Faves is Detective comics first appearance of Batman.

@DavidR: Any Cover ! Marvel , DC, Image , Timely ! Doesn't matter to me as long as I can find some photo reference. Strangely enough I am currently inking Detective Comics #27 right now. So That one is going to be done ! Great Job on your Cap/ Bullseye ! Blew it away as always !

Thanks Man, from the great response I am at least heading in the right direction, just glad the Vine members like it. Hope to see that cover posted soon. Enjoy your day off!
